Review revision 774087Edit

Original reporting notesEdit

I attended this event, counted the crowd and listened to the secretary speak. Evrik (talk) 18:36, 25 February 2009 (UTC)[]


A reference is made to 'employees' in the third paragraph but does not say what employees working for who: Solis' arrival was announced on Wednesday to all employees who were invited to attend an informal gathering to greet her on her first day.

To me it is pretty clear that it is the employees of the Department of Labor. Clarify it further if you think it is necessary. --SVTCobra 00:19, 26 February 2009 (UTC)[]

Attribute pov statementsEdit

"she is seen as being pro-worker, after years of business-friendly leadership under the Bush Administration." This is an opinion. It must to be attributed to someone. Please read WN:NPOV and WN:WEASEL. --SVTCobra 21:09, 26 February 2009 (UTC)[]

    • "We’ve heard tell that after eight years of the Bush administration, employees in more than one federal governmental department have welcomed the new Obama team members as though they were a liberating force. Yesterday, the welcome was especially heartwarming when employees greeted Labor Department Secretary Hilda Solis, confirmed just two days ago."[1]
    • "Solis was also heard telling some in the crowd 'It's time to put labor back in the Department of Labor.'"[2]
    • "Labor groups have been aggressively pushing for Solis, 51, who is to begin work today. She gives the department, with an annual budget of about $53 billion and nearly 17,000 employees, a decidedly pro-worker tilt after years of business-friendly leadership under the Bush administration."[3]
How many more sources do you need? In retrospect, the language used may be too close to that Boston Globe source. Suggestions for reworking it? Evrik (talk) 16:51, 28 February 2009 (UTC)[]


The line in question was sourced and appropriate. I'd like the archived version to go back to this. Evrik (talk) 17:44, 15 March 2009 (UTC)[]
